It’s rare for anyone to get one-on-one time to explore their wellness goals with a trained professional. As an Integrative Nutrition* Health Coach, I create a supportive environment that enables you to articulate and achieve your goals and to find the right lifestyle that works best for you.

Most approaches to healthy living dwell on diet: calories, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, usually involving restrictions and feelings of deprivation. Sure, what you eat is really important.  Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to explore basic improvements and implement gradual changes and supportive habits during our work together. Instead of taking away your favorite foods, you will find NEW favorites, and learn how easy healthy eating can be.  Many of my clients also find these new habits help them to save money in their food budget!

As your Integrative Health* Coach I act as a supportive mentor  and guide on your journey to your best life.  We work together to help you define your health and wellness goals, and take the journey to wellness together, step by step.  My philosophy of bio-individuality means you and every other client has a customized program designed by and for YOU.  No crazy restrictive dieting or shelves filled with supplements, or 6am running on the treadmill - unless you really thrive on that kind of stuff!

Equally important, together we look at what Integrative Nutrition* calls your Primary Food. Career, relationships, hobbies, spirit, mission.  You can eat all the broccoli in the world and if you don't get these right your life will just feel off.  Get more vibrancy by balancing all aspects of your life!

Remain Mindful This Holiday Season

Do you find yourself getting stressed during the holiday season? This time of year is filled with parties, shopping, spending, entertaining, and a list of other demands that can easily lead to overwhelm.

 

Instead of letting it get the best of you, take charge of the season’s stressors with these tips to remain mindful during the holiday season from Integrative Nutrition Health Coaches and medition experts Filippa and Jimmy Tjärnlund:

 

1. It starts with you.


The energy you send out – your thoughts, words, and feelings – creates your experience. Therefore, you are responsible for the quality of your own life. This is a natural universal process called the Law of Attraction. What you send out, you get back! This is great news; it means that if you’re not satisfied, you can choose again – and make a better choice.

 

The holidays can be a stressful season for your wallet, relationships, health, and energy levels. This year, you have a choice! You can allow the outside factors to affect these areas, or you can remain the best version of yourself throughout November, December, and maybe even January. How? We’ve got you covered. It starts with you, and it starts with self-responsibility.

 

No more blame game. It’s not the cashier’s fault that the jacket you wanted for your sister is out of stock. It’s not your mother’s fault that she puts pressure on you to cook the perfect turkey. Take a step back and stop blaming everyone. Instead, focus on what you can do. Ask yourself: “How can I take responsibility to find a happy and peaceful outcome in this situation?”

 

2. Meditation: Become the observer.


Follow these easy steps to connect with yourself and the harmony that is always accessible within. Become the observer and try your best not to react.

 

3. Turn down the volume on your thoughts.


Your thoughts are the only thing standing in your way. They are your biggest blocks. So take a look at them – even the thoughts that make you feel a little crazy! Are they true, or do you have false thoughts on repeat?

 

4. Don’t take anything personally.


Everyone reacts from their perspective, including you. Remain in your energy this holiday season, and don’t take in everyone else’s emotions. Do your best to practice not taking anything personally. Allow people to stay in their feelings while you take responsibility for yours. Try to live by this motto. Remember that practice makes the master.
